Weather in your neck of the woods?

My wife showed me a weather report on facebook for our area next week.  It says 12"-18" of snow likely with the possibility of up to 36"!  I laughed and told her no way we are going to get that much snow.  I sure hope I'm not wrong on that!

Good Lord! I hope that's not true either..! Man you guys out there have just been whacked! Maybe you'll be able to golf as early as June, huh? Jeeze.

We have actually been really lucky when it comes to snow so far. Up until last week we didn't even have snow on the ground just had bitterly cold temps. So I am sure we are due but I don't think it is possible to even prepare for that much over the course of a couple days.

I may have to schedule a golf trip south before too long. Simulator golf is nice but I am getting the itch for the real thing!

6 inches of snow early this week... 3 inches yesterday... 12 inches today.  Oh, and 40 mph winds.

We have 4 feet of snow in the backyard and portions of the front; other parts of the front yard, I can see grass.  4 inches of snow under our patio roof.  Supposed to snow through Monday evening.

High today was 21º ...  last year we got no snow.  No golf for the next few weeks.  We decided to take an all day gun safety class instead.  Fortunately, we only had to drive about 10 blocks, but there were cars stuck everywhere!!!

Currently 28° dropping into the low teens overnight. Got 3” of snow overnight with another 4-6” expected over the next 3 days. The weather nerds say it won’t get over freezing for the next 10 days. Grand total of 11” since the Super Bowl.

Back to the teens for a few days with anywhere from 2 to 8 inches in the next day or two

My street was a literal sheet of ice from the freezing rain we’re getting; I had to go 5 mph and if I even touched the brakes I was drifting over. Go Indiana weather!

I know that snow = 0% chance of golf, but I'm getting tired of all the rain in the Houston area. 

Galveston CC super (J. Smelser) posted on twitter that as of Feb 1, his course has received 82.75" of rain since Sept 1...and this wasn't even due to a hurricane, this was all a pissed off mother nature. I'm not sure what other area courses have received, but everyone is sloppy, soaked, etc. We're supposed to have a dry spell the next three days so hopefully I can call in sick on Friday and get in 18, but then all next week is 40-60% chance of rain every day. 

I never knew who would buy those hideous Nike Bandon golf shoes...turns out I just might need a pair!

Willamette Valley is a mix of snow. hail, wind. rain, 20s, 30s, and 40s. The weather people arent sure what to say or do.

My firm just put together a stormwater plan for a local small city to combat flooding.  It's just a study so, they won't get relief for a while. It's an effort to get some funding to help pay for some of what's necessary.  During the study, we found the area had received a 50-year storm and four 10-year storms within 6 weeks.  

We need some relief!  We've had the equivalent of 19 months rainfall since September.

I love my Nike Bandon Dunes!!  I don't wear them much since most years we don't get much snow or rain.  A few times each year I will wear them on the course if it's really wet and I'm walking.  I wore them yesterday to shovel snow all morning and they kept my feet dry and warm.

My wife and I stayed home all day Monday because it was still snowing and the streets hadn't been plowed yet.  We normally don't get much snow in the winter, so the city doesn't have a lot of plowing capability.  We just wanted to stay out of their way.  I shoveled the driveway... again.

Well, I woke up to another inch or two of fresh powder and shoveled the driveway... again, at 6am.  My wife had to open her business since she closed Monday because of the snow.  Many businesses were closed.  So, I decided to drive her in to work and shovel her walkway and customer parking places.  Took 90 minutes.  Worked up a sweat!!

My wife's business is at the Richland airport (small planes only) and the Port plows the parking lot and the airport grounds.  They had plowed on Monday, but there was that new snow last night; they will probably come around to scrape it off later today when they finish higher priority lots.

We don't normally use the back door to her building since it open onto the airport tarmac, but I decided to take a look...

Guess we won't be using the back door any time soon!!

Rain, rain/snow mix, more rain, more snow, lot more rain mixed with snow, then rain, then snow again, on and on and on...In fact the whole next week to at least next Wednesday looks absolutely "friggin' crappy"-which is a technical meteorological term btw😝...Looks like I picked the right month to send my irons back to PING..! Better start slapping around more putts in the living room too just so I don't go bat sh** crazy...

I was prepared for the snow today, not so much for the unexpected ice storm. Barely made up the hill to my house. Love the Catskills this time of year.

Did you have a dust storm a couple of days ago before your rain/snow??  Local weather people and scientists said that dust, most likely from the Treasure Valley area, blew into our area and dumped a layer of dirt on our fresh snow.  Then it snowed some more.  It's all over town.  Here's a pic of snow I shoveled...

Oooh, that's bizarre...I hadn't heard anything about that. We've had some amount of wind associated with the weather here, but nothing that violent that would have kicked up dust like this...it's been too wet for dusty conditions of any type here quite honestly. And add that for dust to come from us clear down in SW Idaho and go backwards toward the West against prevailing winds..?! I question the science here...weird. Icky, but weird...
